Woolfson's book, Direct Methods in Crystallography, was published in , but because of the rapid progress in direct methods, much of it soon became outmoded. It is interesting to note that direct methods nearly came into being many years earlier.   Co-developer of MULTAN program for direct methods in crystallography.

Theory and Practice of Direct Methods in Crystallography. [M F C Ladd; R A Palmer] -- Direct methods of crystal structure determination are usually associated with techniques in which phases for a set of structure factors are determined from the corresponding experimental amplitudes.   The book presents the underlying mathematics and computing methods in crystallography. The text covers topics on the algebra required for the fundamental operations of transformation of coordinates, interpolation, approximation of trigonometric and exponential functions, solution of linear equations and derivation Book Edition: 1.

Crystallographic direct methods [1, 2] seek to obtain initial estimates of structure-factor phases purely from a knowledge of the measured structure-factor amplitudes, plus general properties of. The term 'direct methods' is applied to that class of methods which seek directly to solve the phase problem by the use of phase relationships based on the observed intensities. The object of this pamphlet is to familiarize the reader with the phase relationships used in Direct Methods, and to explain why they work and how they are used in practice. Abstract. The symbolic addition technique and the multisolution method provide general approaches to crystallographic phase determination. Crystal structures with up to about atoms in the asymmetric unit are solved routinely by these by: 1.
